Space Week for space geeks

Filed under: TV — Tom @ 8:10 am

Just a heads up for those few space geeks out there like me – the Discovery Science channel is running a bunch of new space-related stuff this week for the cleverly titled “Space Week.” Not all of it’s new, however (I believe one show a night is), but last night they ran a really interesting (read: completely dorky for normal people) documentary about the production of NASA’s new Orion space capsule. I’m sure it’ll be on again, so if you’re at all into real space stuff, not sci-fi, be sure and catch this because this is the future of our space program and what we’ll be hearing about for a long, long time starting in about 7 years.

New fact I learned about Orion last night: it will land on land, unlike the Apollo capsules, which landed in the ocean. Neat.
